The Mocking Bird was designated as the State Bird of the State of Florida on April 23, 1927.

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 3 read, in part:

“WHEREAS, The Legislature of the State of Florida has thrown the arm of its protecting care around the Mocking Bird by the enactment of suitable legislation and,

WHEREAS, The melody of its music has delighted the heart of residents and visitors to Florida from the days of the rugged pioneer to the present comer, and

WHEREAS, This bird of matchless charm is found throughout our State, therefore

Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:

Section 1. That the Mocking Bird be and it is hereby designated as the State Bird of the State of Florida.”

 

Thanks, Mocking Bird, for 85 years of dedicated service as the state bird of Florida!
